    Default Tupperware

    I looked up the english word "tupperware" in spanish, and the choice given was "tupperware;" that is, I'm being told that tupperware in spanish is "tupperware."

    There has to be a better way. It can't be "tupperware" in both languages.
    Any suggestions?

    Tupperware is a trademarked brand. It is a proper noun, a name made up by a company for a particular product from a particular company. The company can call it anything they want in any country.

    Believe it or not, Tupperware is Tupperware not only in English and Spanish, but in every other language in the world.
    As such, it must be written with a capital T.
    Strictly, it is not a word, but a trademark, as mariaklec clearly stated, and as such, it should not be translated.

    En español se conoce con el mismo nombre y se pronuncia igual Tupperware

    En Argentina, se llama a los productos por el nombre de la marca, pero de la forma más corta "Tupper".
